France is one of those countries where the oft overused phrase ‘it has it all’ actually applies. Whether you’re after a city break in Paris, a family ski holiday, a relaxing summer holiday on the coast or an adventurous jaunt in the mountains, France has it all. For us in the UK, there is also the added benefit that the country is incredibly accessible, whether by plane, train, ferry or road.
High on the list for a luxury family holiday to France is Paris. Despite being nicknamed 'the
City of Love', there's much more to Paris than just romantic getaways - we
can arrange an array of family-friendly activities that will ensure
you see all the highlights of the city while also keeping the
children entertained and engaged. They (and you) might even learn a
thing or two. Explore the Louvre and other museums with a private
guide who can arrange a treasure hunt for the children while they
explore the museum, discovering masterpieces from the Italian
Renaissance, and even as far back as Ancient Egypt. Alternatively,
embark on an even bigger and better treasure hunt across the whole
city, taking in the most famous spots, including the Eiffel Tower,
the Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame and more.
If it's adventure rather than culture that you're after for your
French luxury family holiday, we point you firmly in the direction
of the Alps. The French Alps are home to some of the best skiing in
the world, including areas such as the Three Valleys which are
fantastic for families, with slopes suited to all abilities.
Whether you're a gang of beginners or fancy yourselves as the von
Trapps of snow sports, we can recommend the most suitable resort.
The Alps also make for a great family summer holiday option, with
biking, hiking, climbing and more to keep even the most energetic
If you're after more watery wonders, opt to spend the summer
en famille on the Cote d'Azur, enjoying
watersports along the coast, exploring local villages and enjoying
plenty of delicious food (and, of course, wine). For those wanting
to stay inland away from the glitz and glamour of St Tropez or
Cannes, we can recommend some delightful hilltop towns across the
French Riviera to make your home.
From city centre hotels à Paris to exclusive, remote
chalets in the Alps, we have the inside track on the best
family-friendly accommodation for you and your brood to make
magical memories together in this chic country.
